How do I transfer files from Onedrive to OneNote?

  • This can be done from either Onedrive Desktop or Onedrive Online
  • Open the file you want to transfer and select “File” in the top left hand corner and then “Print” from the left side menu bar.
  • This will open the print settings, shown below (Left image: Onedrive Desktop, Right image: Onedrive Online). Change the destination of the printer to "Send to OneNote 16".  Please note: you may have to select “See more” in the Destination drop-down menu to find the option for sending to OneNote.
